    Hi Darya,
    Huge, long-time reader, first time commenter. Regarding seafood…it’s so unbelievably depressing. Do you personally avoid seafood all together? Or do you have some kind of guidelines you follow for purchasing seafood? Previously, I would just look for wild caught pacific salmon, for example, but that seems to not be enough now.

    Thank you so much for what you do. I’ll need to write you a longer message soon so I can let you know how dramatically and positively you have impacted my life (and by extension, the lives of my loved ones).

      haha, meant to say “Huge fan”…definitely not a giant!

      I still eat seafood. I eat a lot of oysters, roe, and do still sometimes eat wild Alaskan salmon. I also eat sardines at home, and don’t worry about it too much when I go out (always at good restaurants I trust) since I don’t go out that often.

      So happy to hear you’re crushing your healthstyle! I’d love to hear more.

    The link on poached eggs is life changing! I tested it out and made perfect poached eggs for the first time. I have very little time to cook, so adding this method to my arsenal is hugely helpful.

  3. re: the seafood article; so sad that we continue pollute the ocean and then fish in such an unsustainable way. To make it worse, the coal lobbyists come in and create Orwellian terms like, “Clean Coal Technology” to mislead the public about the danger. it’s like watching a car crash in super-slow motion

    I’m fascinated by the use of psychedelics for medicinal purposes and I’m so excited Michale Pollan took it upon himself to write a book on these medicines. Yes, I said medicines. Excited the word is getting out!
